I’m not typically a slacker (though that is certainly an aspiration) but April put the rest of the year (so far!) to shame. Work was much as usual, but my personal life — whoa. I started writing again, picking up the 30 page outline of Archer & Bell vol. 2 where I had left it off over a year ago. It was very exciting there for a few days … until I realized that the pace at which I’ve written in the past is probably not realistic at this time, with everything else that is going on in my life. I want (and need) writing to be fun, which means that I can’t (and won’t) hold myself to a rigid schedule. Hopefully, the book will see the light of day at some point. Speaking of other fun things, I also read a bunch of books and watched a ton of Netflix, and somehow still managed to keep up with life, which is some kind of miracle, and also the reason why I am constantly sleep deprived. No regrets; 10/10, would do it all again. And that is still not all. I also did some thrifting, got microblading (!!), and had my initial consultation for Lasik surgery, which is happening very very soon.

But let’s not forget why you’re here (I assume): the clothes.

I’ve been doing this blogging thing for a long time — my 7th blogging anniversary is just around the corner — so I can’t help but feel like I’m becoming more and more predictable, at least as far as my outfit formulas go. These are all combinations you’ve seen before, with a few new(ish) pieces mixed in. I think I ended up using more prints than in recent months; I’m not sure how I feel about that. On one hand, I tend to *feel* more comfortable in plainer outfits these days. On the other hand, I *like* looking at more colourful, print-heavy outfits. I’m still working on finding the right balance, one day at a time.

For fun, here’s a look at my April 2015 and April 2016 recaps.

8 Comments on What I Wore: April 2017

  1. I would love to hear about your microblading experience! As a fellow ginger, I am nervous about the color, but would love to live that easy life of not being an eyebrow pencil, powder, pomade, etc. for awhile.

    • I am definitely going to write a post about it! However, I have not yet had my follow-up appointment which is a part of the process, so I think it’s best if I hold off until all that is done before I share my thoughts (I have a lot, LOL!)

  2. I like this month! It satisfies my love for colors and patterns – more so than recent months. But what matters is that YOU like it. If you’re like me, you dress to make yourself happy – everyone else is just a happy extra. Have a good weekend!

  3. Looking forward to your micro-blading post. I also had my consultation for eye surgery recently and all booked in for it to happen on 31st May – eeek! Good luck with yours! Emily

    • Thanks and good luck with yours. Mine went OK, although recovery has not been nearly as “easy peasy” as some people had suggested to me. I’m still in the recovery phase (less than a week post-op) and while my eyes are still adjusting, I have no regrets so far.
